Default Re: Nicko McBrain

Great stories and comments in regards to Nicko... I was lucky enough to meet him backstage at what was then the Irvine Ampitheatre..It was on the Somewhere in Time tour. The man is amazing, with at least 50-100 people around and dying to talk to him as well as get photos with him. He gave me about 25 minutes of his time to just talk and swap a few stories, as well as a few pints each. As for his playing, i personally find him to be my biggest influenece next to Bonham ( RIP ). If your new to Maiden or just want to know what he's all about. Try these 2 songs on for size. Where eagles dare on Piece of Mind and Face in the Sand on there latest Dance of death. WOW....you wanna talk about a FOOT..............Cheers
